Lesson #2: Atoms and the periodic table. Objective: Draw the electron shells of the first 20 elements. How to read an element on the periodic table. Remember: Protons are Heavy and Positively (+ ve ) Charged Neutrons are Heavy and Neutral
Draw the electron shells of the first 20 elements
Protons are Heavy and Positively (+ve) Charged
Neutrons are Heavy and Neutral
Electrons are Tiny and Negatively (-ve) Charged
1st: 2 2nd: 8 3rd: 8 4th:16
Use a whole page horizontally.
At the top, write the name of the element.
In the middle of the box write the symbol (small),
Around the symbol we are going to draw the electrons together.
Let’s make the periodic table!
1. Your table must decide where to place your cards on the empty periodic table on the board.
2. When you’re finished be sure to sit down so that we know who the winners are.
You will be given an element.
You must add it’s electrons on using the wooden sticks and plasticine.
We will use your models later on for bonding
